In the garden  
two lovers stand
unveiled before one another  

On either side are
the Tree of Knowledge and the Tree of Life
and in the distance
the great cosmic mountain  
connection between heaven and earth  

Above them is 
a bright yellow sun  
and emerging from a cloud  
an angelic figure  
with red wings spread wide  
and arms extended  
to pour down upon them
its Divine influences  

The woman’s eyes are cast upward  
while behind her  
the snake twines through the tree   

The man gazes at the woman 
for it is through  
that he experiences  
Divine love.
